SriLankan Airlines joined the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2023, Middle East’s leading international travel and tourism event, from May 1-4 in Dubai, to boost tourism from the Middle East and North Africa. The ATM has been a mainstay on the SriLankan Airlines’ calendar as the event affords unparalleled opportunities to network with travel trade luminaries and highlight the airline in the Middle East. The region is an important source market for high-net worth tourists and SriLankan promoted its flight services from the Middle East to Sri Lanka and beyond for leisure travel at ATM 2023.

SriLankan Airlines currently operates over 40 weekly flights to the Middle East spanning the key cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; Doha in Qatar; Dammam and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia; and Kuwait. The airline is now looking to further strengthen its operations in the Middle East with the anticipated new aircraft deliveries to its fleet in the near future. SriLankan’s plans for the Middle East include an increase in the number of weekly flights to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha and the relaunch of services to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

For Middle Eastern customers seeking the thrill and vibrancy of Sri Lanka, SriLankan Airlines is arguably the best choice of travel due to the airline’s convenient and direct flight options between multiple cities across the Middle East and the island. SriLankan Airlines further offers quick connections to passengers travelling beyond Colombo to the Maldives, India and the Far East, which are prominently covered in the airline’s network.

This year’s ATM drew travel and tourism professionals as well as media from all corners of the world. SriLankan Airlines is optimistic that its participation at this unique event will help mobilize support from the Middle Eastern travel trade for the airline and Sri Lanka, and entice tourists from the region to make Sri Lanka their next vacation stop.
